Actes and Monumentes of the church.

the buylding whereof the Sanaballites and Tobies dyd not onely as then hynder & wast, but euen at thys daye also (as Sathan is a most suttle sclaunderer) worke al the policies they can deuise, that the truthe (whych is not darke, vnlesse men wyl be blinded wylfullye) shoulde not come abroade and be seene in the lyght. While the broken and decayed places of this woorke were in repairing, it came to remembraūce how the ryght reuerend father and sometyme our scholemaister MarginaliaThe restitution of Bucer & Phagius.Martin Bucer with Paulus Phagius, being taken with the violent tempest of the former tymes, wer throwen downe out of their standing, whych they had in the wal of this building. Whom the most reuerend fathers in Christ Mathew Parker, now Archbishop of Canterbury, and Primate of al England, whych before at hys buryal preached honorablye of hym, and Edmond Grindal byshoppe of London (who among the rest that dyd hym that seruice) dyd helpe to beare hym in hys coffin to buryall on hys shoulders, and other both honorable and worshipful persons, among whō was Walter Haddon, mayster of the Requestes to the Quenes highnes, who made a funerall Oration of the deathe of Bucer, beyng hym selfe halfe dead, hauing receiued commission of the Quenes maiestye to make a reformation of religion in the vniuersity of Cambridge and other partes of the realme, decreed that they should be set in theyr places agayne. For the performance whereof, the foresaid right reuerende Fathers adressed MarginaliaLetters directed for the restitutiō of Bucer & Phagius.theyr letters to the Vicechauncellour and the Graduates of the uniuersity. Andrew Perne bare styll that office (who by hys good wyl) could not abyde to heard one woorde spoken as touchyng the ful restitution of Bucer and Phagius. When he had perused these letters, hee propounded the matter to the degrees of the Vniuersity, whether it pleased them, that the degrees and tytles of honour, taken away from Martin Bucer and Paulus Phagius, by the verdit of the whole Vniuersity, should by the same be fully restored agayne: and that all actes done agaynst them and their doctrine should be repealed and disanulled. The which demaunds were openly consented vnto by al the Graduates of the vniuersity. Thys was aboute the xxii. day of Iuly, in the yere of oure lord 1560. Albeit that this had bene sufficient to restore them lawfully agayne: neuerthelesse, forasmuch as it seemed not inoughe in consideration of the dignity of so worthy men, and in satisfaction of the duty of the vniuersity, they that were the chiefe doers in this matter, called a congregation in S. Mary Churche, at þe last day of the same moneth sauing one. In the which place consultation was had concerning Bucer and Phagius, not with so greate

furniture & gloriousnes (which thinges the truth seketh not gredely for) but wt honest cōlines, to the entent to recōcile mens hartes agayne. An oration was made by Acworth the common Oratour of the Vniuersity, whose wordes I will rehearce in order as he spake them.

The Oration of Maister Acworth, Oratour of the Vniuersity, at the restitution of Martin Bucer, and Paulus Phagius.

The orations of Acworth and Pilkington were dropped from the 1570 and 1576 editions but restored in the 1583 edition.

MarginaliaThe Oration of Acworth.I am in dout whether I may entreat of the prayse and commendation of so great a Clarke (for the celebrating whereof this assembly and concurse of yours is made this day) or of the vices and calamities, out of the which we be newly deliuered, or of them both: considering the one can not bee mentioned withonte the other. In the which tymes ye felt so much anguysh and sorrow (my ryght deare brethren) that if I should repeate them and bryng them to remembrance agayne, I feare me, I shoulde not so muche woorke a iust hatred in vs towardes them, for the iniuries receiued in them, as renue our old sorrow and heauynes. Again, men must nedes accompt me vnaduised and foolyshe in my doing, if I shoulde thynke my selfe able to make him which hath liued before our eyes in praise and estimation, more famous and notable by my Oration, which hee by hys lyuinge and conuersation hath often tymes polished. But the wyckednes of the tymes, which endeuored to wype cleane out of remembrauuce of men the name that was so famous and renoumed in euery mans mouth, dyd muche profyt hym. In so much that both in his lyfe tyme al thing redounded to hys continual renowne, and in especially after hys decease nothyng coulde bee deuised more honorable, then with so solemne furniture and ceremonies to haue gone about to haue hurt the memorial of suche a woorthye man, and yet could not bring to passe the thing that was so sore coueted, but rather broughte that thing to passe, which was chiefelye sought to be auoyded. For the desyre that men haue of the dead, hath purchased to many men euerlasting fame, and hath not taken awaye immortalitye, but rather amplified and increased the same. By meanes whereof it commeth to passe that he that wyl entreate of those thinges þt pertayne to the prayse of Bucer after hys deathe, cannot chuse but speake of the crabbednes of the times past, vppon the which ryseth a great encrease and augmentation of hys prayse. But his lyfe is so excellently set forth, not onelye by the writinges of the learned Clarkes, Cheeke and Carre, and by the liuely voyce of the right famous Doctor Haddon, vttered in this place to the great admiration of al the hearers, whē hys body should be layed into hys graue to be buried, and after hys buryal by the godlye and most holy preachinges of the ryghte reuerende father in Christ the Archbishop of Caunterburye that now is, and of Doctour Redman, the whiche for the woorthynes and excellencye of them, oughte to stycke longer in oure myndes vnwritten, then many things that are penned & put in print, but also by the great assēblye of al the degrees of the Vniuersity the same day,
